Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I would like to request for dVPOC. If
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

How would that be different from what you are already showing?

Edit: unless you are drawing thos on manually.... then the name of the study you are looking for is Volume value area lines. the first choice in the setting is to choose developing or static.

The image was from Ninja. I am not interested in developing value area. Looking only for VPOC shifts

yeah, same indicator, just set the VAH and VAL to ignore in the settings, and it will only display VPOC

I use the ZigZag tool to label swing highs/lows, for example:

Recently as we've been breaking some real old levels, I'm having a hard time associating a line with a date. I would really welcome a quick way to be able to click on a ZigZag plot and know what the original bar date/time was.

Hi,

Could you please work on your volume profile indicator. When you try to create a composite profile on the daily chart with hundreds of prices the graphic become very unclear and when you zoom in its all over the place (its fine on intraday charts as i guess there are less price levels). There are random tiny bars and several bars in a row which are the same level. It really need a dramatic improvement to make it an accurate tool. Its very difficult to pinpoint the high and low volume prices on a large daily chart which goes back a few years.

Thanks

I'd like a "Show Profit/Loss After Commissions" input added to the Trading: Profit/Loss Text study.

It would only display in currency, and be based on the DPL if 'Include Open P/L in Daily P/L' is No, and be based on the NPL if 'Include Open P/L in Daily P/L' is Yes.

It would require two new Input Names/Values:
Show Profit/Loss After Commissions | Yes/No
RT Commission | currency value

Not sure when this went in (no release notes yet), but this is in 899.

Option: Round Turn Commission To Include

899! Wow, I still have 676 includes for some code I wrote for someone. That's a lot of releases.

I am guessing those 200 builds has taken what, 350 days? It seems like there is a new build every other day or so Which is a completely awesome thing since they are separated into Release channel and Beta channel.

Oldest one listed on the changelog page is build 804 December 2011, so 100 builds in 9-10 months.
